Mexico detains woman wanted in slaying of Texas dentist

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican prosecutors say they have detained a woman on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted fugitives list for the killing of a dentist in Texas.

The Attorney General’s Office said Friday that 33-year-old Brenda Delgado was detained at a house in the city of Torreon, in northern Coahuila state. She will be held at a Mexico City prison pending extradition proceedings.

Delgado faces charges of capital murder and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution in connection with the September death of Dr. Kendra Hatcher.

Hatcher, 35, was fatally shot in the parking garage of a Dallas apartment complex. Police have arrested the suspected gunman. Delgado is accused of arranging the hit.

Investigators say Delgado was jealous because Hatcher was dating her ex-boyfriend and had recently been introduced to his parents.
